I have been a sponcer of a little girl, now a young woman, in Bluefields, Nicaragua. I have been able to correspond with her on a regular basis. Through my relationship with her I have developed a need, if you will, to sponcer several more young people. I have seen how dramaitcally the life of my first "Goddaughter" has changed and have wished to be able to give more childern this chance. CFCA has given me the chance to help these childern as well as helping me to give myself a sence of accomplishment by helping some one in desperate need! I do encourage anyone with the "need'" to help to use CFCA as a vehicle to accomplish their charity!

I have been a sponcer for 15 years. The past 3 years I have traveled to see the Kids I am sponcering. By visiting the kids and their homes I have seem all the good that can come of a sponcership through CFCA. After visiting my first sponcered child I realized that I need to do more. Thus began a relationship with 4 more kids. After visiting the homes of those additional kids I was able to funnel some of my donation dollars to their needs in the likes of beds, education, cooking stoves and a house that stays dry during a rain.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

traveling to Nicaragua and seeing the needs of so many people in the outlying areas of that country. Also in seeing the results of the help offered to them.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

do some advertising so that many more people would be aware that CFCA exists. I find that so many people do not know and many are eager to help once they are given the particulars of the organization.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I sponcer 5 children through CFCA.
